All about the CX digital magazines

Your school counselors will remember the print magazines we used to send to schools across the country. We started printing our college search magazines way back in 1985! A lot of things have changed since then, including how we distribute these resources. We’ve gone green and digital, offering these valuable college search resources in a new and improved online format that you can access anytime, anywhere! Our magazines include quick introductions to our featured schools, plus top-notch articles and advice to help you with the college and scholarship search process. It’s the perfect tool to help you start researching colleges you’d like to apply to—plus, we make it easy to connect with these schools so you can get on their radar and demonstrate your interest!

What’s a featured school?

A featured school is one that we’ve partnered with to help you connect and request information quickly and easily. Every school featured in our college search magazines is one of our partners—which means they’re looking for students like you and want to make it easier for you to learn more about them. The green “Yes, connect me” buttons on any CollegeXpress featured profile allows you to request information in one click. You’ll also find all our partners based on major and school type on our Featured College Profiles page.

Digital magazine student audiences

When we went digital in 2020, we really wanted to focus on five distinct audiences because we had many partner schools looking for these types of students. Between the plethora of religious colleges in the US, the increase in international education, the value added from a graduate degree, and the gap in guidance for students looking to transfer, these resources are great for assisting students with specific needs in finding the colleges to support them.

Catholic Colleges & Universities

Are you seeking a private college education in a Catholic environment? Catholic Colleges and Universities magazine features great institutions with strong foundations, excellent academics, and an appreciation for developing the whole person, plus questions to ask during your college search, strategies to win more scholarships, and more.

CollegeXpress showed me that Western New England University was a great match for me both with curriculum and location. CollegeXpress is an excellent resource both future and current college students.

High School Class of 2022

I never would have found the college I plan on attending without CollegeXpress! I've always been a person of ambition and have been dreaming of studying and working on my passion for law, legal studies, and political science. Washington College is where I plan on pursuing my career. My journey with my education has been difficult, and oftentimes, I was told I would never amount to much, but now I'm dual enrolled at Caroll Community College and have had experience in the fields I am dedicated to. Without the help of CollegeXpress (even in its early days), I would never have found Washington College and the information I need to apply and become a part of their community.



High School Class of 2019

CollegeXpress has helped me by opening my eyes to new opportunities. I learned about such easy ways to get financial help to achieve my dreams while also learning about myself and who I truly am. I know this isn't a very long explanation of what CollegeXpress has done for me, but nonetheless, I believe it's crucial to how I developed as a person throughout my time as a college student.



High School Class of 2021

CollegeXpress really helped me by letting me know the colleges ratings and placements. They gave me accurate information on my colleges tuition rates and acceptance. They even let me know the ration between students and faculty and the diversity of the college. Overall they told me everything I needed and things I didnt even think I needed to know about my college and other colleges I applied for.
